Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: For JOTS [and not DSO fans]

The personal issue I have with DSO and other knock off bands is that at no level of my conscious thought can I form the belief that it's connected to reality. On the other hand, I find it very appealing for someone out of the blue to come in, do a cover, and make it their own. For it to get my attention it usually must be a big surprise and come from someone that's not of the same Elvis Costello doing Ship of Fools.

I also became a huge fan of Jackie Greene with PAF last tour, rather than comparing the PAF experience with the old incarnation of the Dead. In this case, Phil became the problem, or his singing anyway.
